The old Howdy Honda has been completely demolished and removed in preparation for the Aloft Hotel.

Construction was pushed back, but an Austin American-Statesman article from March says that they're planning to add 2 floors to the south tower. That would make it 7 floors and probably around 109 feet or so to the main roof, and possibly up to 121 feet to the mechanical penthouses based on the current design.

The real shocker is that they're planning to add 6 to 7 new floors atop the existing parking garage. That would potentially make it the tallest parking garage in the city with 14 to 15 floors, and the height would probably be around 148 feet to the top level and upwards of 168 feet to the elevator shaft based on the dimensions of the one that's up there now. The new expansion would add 560 to 718 new spaces.

St. David’s South Austin Medical Center plans $58 million expansion

By Shonda Novak - American-Statesman Staff

Construction is expected to start in mid 2017 and wrap up in early 2019, Steward said.

Originally, the capital investment for the project totaled $50 million, but the amount increased by $8 million to include an expansion of the existing parking garage, hospital officials said. St. David’s officials are evaluating several options that could result in six to seven new parking garage floors and 560 to 718 new parking spaces.

The expansion also calls for adding two floors in the medical center’s south tower.

According to these FAA filings and their unbelievably shitty map there will be two tower cranes going up in SoCo. One is 220' and one is 180'. I suspect these are for the Hotel Magdalena mixed use project. IIRC there is also another project going up adjacent to the Hotel Magdalena project. So one of the cranes may be for that one.

I just use the cardinal coordinates in Google Earth to find the location.

It's about time, obviously the meeting my father went to were way off on their timeline.

I don't see why they just can't build a new parking garage. They have a large area of surface parking that they can build on. The plus side is that garage has a great view of the city. Will be even better 7 levels higher.

I was wondering about that myself. Perhaps they have other plans for future expansion and want to save the surface lots for those?
